Form & Verdict

Just modest form in his six starts but there was much more encouragement in his latest fourth of 13 in a 7f classified event here three weeks ago, coming from well back to take fourth; encouragement for 1m on pedigree and he's more appealing than many.

0-16; produced a series of consistent efforts earlier in the year, including on Tapeta here and at Southwell (1m); has failed to beat a single rival though in four starts since finishing runner-up at Pontefract in May; risky, and really needs to change of headgear to have the desired effect.
